    This has been discussed before loads of times and I've searched for it as well on these forums, reading older threads hoping somebody else would have asked:

    'Where can I buy Apple Stock?'

    I'm coming into a large amount of money on Monday and want to grab some shares before they (assuming here) go up. I want some. Where do I buy?

    Sign-up for an online brokerage. I've used Ameritrade for the last eight years, and they're fine. $10 per trade.

    I really don't want to come across as condescending, but my gut feeling says that if you have to ask where to buy stock, you may not be ready to invest in individual stocks. The stock market is a risky place, and beginning investors are usually best off by diversifying their investment into something like a mutual fund. Picking individual stocks should involve more than just liking a company and thinking their stock is going to go up just because of an event that every other investor also knows is going to be happening.

    Apple could soar 10% or more on Tuesday, or it could tank by the same amount or more...nobody knows.

    stockbroker hint

    This is a hint from a stockbroker:

    I once went to a financial class at my church and the stockbroker there said that you should get your finances in order before you buy stock.

    Invest in mutual funds and bonds.

    Like you I would love to invest in Apple or Coca Cola but I have to get my finances straight. I want to pay off my credit cards, then invest.
    Good Luck in the future.

    No, you're right, I'm really new to this. So anything you say is quite helpful. :)
